My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate -- a life and a role that she has never challenged...until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister -- and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.

    I was going to say yes, but I remember I have something with the "Next Generation: For People in their 20s and 30s" thing through my library.
    It's a big deal because it is very hard for them to get a group for them. I have no idea why, but I'm glad they did. Maybe for the next book.
    Although if I did discuss this, it would be my 3rd time reading it. Years before, the time we will be discussing it for MY book club and this. Although I have something called "The Book Lover's Journal" so I wouldn't have to read it again and again.

      The thing about this book I like is, stories have different endings, sometimes from the movie. Sometimes the endings change a little or not, but I can't tell you how drastic this change is compared to the movie. I don't care if you read the book first or watch the movie first, you will still be shocked.

      My book club that you were in will be discussing it in a few months: August 7 and 21. I know it's a long time away, but still. At least we will eventually.
